Acupuncture, a non-surgical therapeutic practice dating back to China, some 2,500-years ago, is widely practiced in the U.S. today. So, it’s no surprise that it is a popular treatment used by many holistic and traditional doctors alike to help people with chronic pain and other conditions like depression and insomnia. As more and more positive research comes to light, it’s no wonder it is still gaining clout as a viable and effective alternative treatment to drugs and surgery. If the thought of small needles pricking your skin (even lightly), dissuades you from trying Acupuncture, you’re certainly not alone. But rest assured that the medical professionals at Miami Beach Comprehensive Wellness Center are well-trained in acupuncture and will make you very comfortable as well as put your mind at ease.
The procedure is usually not uncomfortable at all. Some report no pain at all and most report excellent results almost immediately. The goal of acupuncture treatment is to relieve chronic back pain, muscle pain, and migraines, but it can also help with many other conditions and illnesses.
Acupuncture aids in removing toxic blockages, restoring energy flow, balancing your organs, body, and mind. Many seniors in Miami Beach use acupuncture to relieve back pain, but it can also help with many other conditions and illnesses. At Miami Beach Comprehensive Wellness Center, we often use acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, gemstone, and Chinese herbal medicine.
Acupuncture helps to relieve many medical conditions, such as:
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Menstrual cramps
- Low back pain
- Tennis elbow
- & More
Once the needles are inserted, some acupuncturists hand turn them gently for added therapeutic benefit. Although there are many uses for acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine, in Western medicine it is traditionally used to aid patients with chronic pain.
The healing properties of acupuncture assist with the following:
- Getting a restful night’s sleep. Acupuncture relaxes you; it helps you feel less anxious so you’ll get a peaceful night’s rest. After an acupuncture treatment, most people report feeling refreshed and more energized to deal with the day.
- Improved circulation. Acupuncture relaxes specific muscles and helps improve blood flow. This can have very positive effects on the body. While simultaneously assisting with low energy and chronic fatigue.
- Removing harmful toxins from your lymphatic system, which promotes good health, gives you more energy and combats fatigue.
- Depression and anxiety. It is believed that acupuncture can be the perfect remedy for depression and anxiety symptoms and treat the underlying condition.
